Making Visual Art and Making a Good Living in Digital Hong Kong

A Symposium by the Hong Kong America Center
Saturday afternoon, September 22, 2018
Venue: H6 CONET, G/F, The Center, 99 Queen’s Road Central

The Hong Kong America Center invites students in the fine arts, design and cultural programs at the universities in Hong Kong to a Saturday Symposium in Central to focus for an afternoon on these ideas.  As you know, arts and cultural industries are a growing part of HK’s service economy, and increasingly interconnected with other sectors of that economy.  The digital age is changing the way artists work, and make a living.  How should young artists prepare for, and thrive in, Hong Kong’s digital – and culturally vibrant – future?

The symposium is offered at no cost to students, but we ask for an online registration, first come first served, as places are limited:
